Prevention and Attribution of Cyberthreats against Cybersecurity Stakeholders

Duration: September 2023 - December 2025



This project revolves around three main areas. On the one hand, it aims to propose an observatory of tools and technologies that, either by design or by the use made of them, pose a risk to vulnerable groups. On the other hand, to focus on the “average user” of the internet systems and its associated risks. This user not only does not have technical knowledge high, but also runs certain risks intentionally or by ignorance. Lastly, improving the understanding of the problems of security by the creators of the systems themselves (or possibly by the security analysts).
